Just another slow Saturday

Sunday, April 29th, 2007

Except, of course, for most of the world this is Sunday. But I’m on a weekend shift rotation at work right now, meaning I work Tuesday through Saturday. So last night was my Friday night, which I spent knitting and reading about the history of photography. Then I went to bed and woke up on […]

Warm socks!
